Hi everyone. I know that, unfortunately, this board is dying slowly, but in case people visit here, do you have ideas for alternatives to blurb?

They are becoming quite expensive for simple coffee table books. So, I am wondering what else is out there. Not interested in moving up to Asuka, etc. -- just lower cost books with good quality paper/printing.

Thanks.

-- A.

I just made some amazing books of my travel images using iPhoto. It was easy and versatile, and I was really impressed with the reproduction quality. It took about four days from sending it to Apple until I received it.

MyPublisher.com has been good for my big books. The smallest and second smallest size were just OK.
Winkflash is adequate to a little below par.
A&I is not good last I looked (2 years ago).

Thanks guys. I remember mypublisher from the days I was making coffee table books for wedding clients. It was not bad. I will give it another try.

....is Artisan State. You have to be approved for an account, but the quality is excellent for what they call their "Little Black Book."

And the price is right. I used to use Blurb, but now strictly use Artisan State for photo books.
